It looks like my last blog is slightly outdated. It should include The Dark Knight as the number one Batman film released theatrically. Opening Night I watched this movie on the IMAX screen, and it was quite breathtaking to see some of the cinematography. The settings for the movie are a huge contrast from what we saw in the previous film, but there was still plenty of chaos on screen.…

Growing up as an Asian American male in the US, I had a hard time finding tv and movie characters that I really identified. My love for movies wasn't really sparked until I turned 18 when I began working at a rental story and really brushed up on all the classic films I've missed out as a kid. On my laptop screen I popped in titles like Rambo, Die Hard, Equilibrium, Boondock Saints and other great flicks that I'll still remember as an old man. However outside of the Hong Kong martial arts films… Continue

The Thing set the new standard for remakes and to this day stands as one of the best ever. Scary, thrilling and even after 25 years, still holds up.… Continue

One year, one incredible year, gave us all this and it didn't matter what else was going on in the world. The whole… Continue

Well, the science fiction phenomenon known as Battlestar Galactica

That shows that they actually care about making quality television, not milking as much moolah out of their viewers as they can. Unfortunately there are apparently still money-mongering executives around not willing to quit… Continue
